Hi. Does anyone know of a tutorial for the type of pencil pouch that you keep in a three ring binder? I would like to make one for my daughter for school. Thanks.

Are grommets hard to learn?  That's a good tute.  Might have to do a few of those for Christmas for the young ones  Grin

You might be able to use buttonholes (if your machine has that option) in lieu of grommets.

Oh cool. I think I would put the zipper on top instead. Thanks.

I would move the zipper too. I would just make this:

Make it an inch or two longer than usual, sew across the bottom, turn right side out, decoratively top stitch across the bottom (up that extra inch or two you added on). Add your buttonholes or grommets and your good to go.

Happy Crafting! Cheesy Happy Day!

I make these pouches alot. All you have to do is get filler binder paper to use as a template and make the holes with a hole punch. The grommets are real easy to do. All the instructions are on the package.

This reminded me of a pattern I saw a while ago online, and another one I found today while surfing.  Sewing at About.com has one, too, but it doesn't have the main zipper on the front though.
